small change toward a rich life


Hi, I’m Karawynn, and I write Pocketmint.

I am forty-two years old; I live in Seattle Washington with my partner Jak, one dog, two cats, and (part-time) my younger stepdaughter, age thirteen.

Beyond my passion for personal finance and behavioral economics, I am also: a visual and UI designer, a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, and a foodie and gourmet cook.

My financial journey has been profiled on Marketplace Money and in the New York Times, and my personal finance tips have been picked up by Lifehacker and Forbes. I recently reported for Fortune Magazine on salary negotiation, and I am currently writing a book based on my Conflict-Free Family Budget series.

For more about the story behind Pocketmint, see the Mission page.

You can follow Pocketmint on Twitter (@pocketmint), on Facebook, and on Google+, or follow me personally on Twitter (@karawynn) or on Google+.
